LSD Makes The Brain More Complete: Scientists

Something long suspected now has evidence to back it up, the "oneness" thing, and the induced death of the ego. And:
As an individual matures, her thinking becomes more rigid....
To her detriment. The supple branch bends with the wind. The brittle branch snaps.

LSD Makes The Brain More Complete: Scientists

Lysergic acid diethylamide or LSD makes the brain more complete, scientists found. For the first time, brain scans revealed how a dose of the psychedelic substance affects brain activity and connectivity.

The new brain images give scientists the opportunity to create new theories for the visual hallucinations as well as the individual's sense of "oneness with the universe" when they go on a 'trip.'

"For the first time, we can really see what's happening in the brain during the psychedelic state, and can better understand why LSD had such a profound impact on self-awareness," said senior researcher and neuropsychopharmacology professor David Nutt from Imperial College London.

Based on the brain scans, researchers found that people high on LSD experience several images coming from many parts of the [brain]. Normally, images are drawn from the brain's visual cortex, the part that processes visual information.

During a 'trip,' the regions that are normally separated connect with each other. The images also revealed that the brain parts which normally group together become segregated among users who are high on LSD.

This change complemented the individual's sense of oneness with the universe. Experts call this the "ego dissolution," wherein the typical sense of self is broken and replaced with one that connects them with others, themselves and the natural world.

"In many ways, the brain in the LSD state resembles the state our brains were in when we were infants: free and unconstrained," said Dr. Robin Cahart-Harris who led the research.

"This also makes sense when we consider the hyper-emotional and imaginative nature of an infant's mind."

Harris added that as humans develop from infancy to adulthood, the brain transforms into a more compartmentalized one. As an individual matures, her thinking becomes more rigid....

In the proper surroundings, in the proper company, a dose would do you good. And "a" dose. Nobody's talking about your daily Soma here ... 'cept you.

Ah yes, a lifetime drug user now prescribing a most dangerous artificial drug aka LSD. How nifty. Actually, how stupid.

Check out this ex, cause I know you and other righties are against too much regulation:

Quote:
Psychedelic drugs like LSD could be used to treat depression, study suggests
Researchers warn that patients are missing out on potential benefits due
to prohibitive regulations on research into recreational drugs


Psychedelic drugs could prove to be highly effective treatments for depression and alcoholism, according to scientists who have obtained the first brain scans of people under the influence of LSD.

Early results from the trial, involving 20 people, are said to be “very promising” and add to existing evidence that psychoactive drugs could help reverse entrenched patterns of addictive or negative thinking.

...“These drugs offer the greatest opportunity we have in mental health,” [former chief drugs adviser Prof David Nutt (LOL) ] said. “There’s little else on the horizon.”

There has been a resurgence of medical interest in LSD and psilocybin, the active ingredient in magic mushrooms, after several recent trials produced encouraging results for conditions ranging from depression in cancer patients to post-traumatic stress disorder.

A US study in 2014 showed that LSD helped patients with life-threatening illnesses overcome anxiety about death, in 2012 MDMA (the active ingredient in ecstasy) in combination with psychotherapy was shown to be effective at treating post-traumatic stress disorder and a 2006 study from scientists in Arizona found that psilocybin relieved symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

...He equated the barriers to research to the Catholic church’s censorship of Galileo’s work in 1616. “We’ve banned research on psychedelic drugs and other drugs like cannabis for 50 years,” he said. “Truly, in terms of the amount of wasted opportunity, it’s way greater than the banning of the telescope. This is a truly appalling level of censorship.”

Here's the text of the study submitted to the National Academy of Sciences, which, probably, has been compromised by Satan and his affiliates.

The conclusion:

Finally, as evidence supporting the therapeutic potential of psychedelics mounts, so does our need to better understand how these drugs work on the brain.
In many psychiatric disorders, the brain may be viewed as having become entrenched in pathology, such that core behaviors become automated and rigid. Consistent with their “entropic” effect on cortical activity, psychedelics may work to break down such disorders by dismantling the patterns of activity on which they rest.

Future work is required to test this hypothesis and the others that have been presented here as part of a broader initiative to properly utilize these valuable scientific tools.
